In February 2005, Sarah became involved with Alta and took on the position of Winemaker. The 2005 vintage was her first, which followed the successful 2003 and 2004 releases.

Four years at Adelaide University's Roseworthy Campus studying Oenology and seven years working for Orlando Wyndham as both red and white winemaker, producing wines from all over Australia, was enough to convince Sarah that the Adelaide Hills is an outstanding and distinctive wine region.

"Working at Orlando gave me the opportunity to work alongside many industry legends, such as John Vickery and Philip Laffer. When I left Orlando, I had a great knowledge base and enough confidence to pursue my dream of owning my own brand. Of all the wine regions I have made wine from, I've been most impressed by the uniqueness and potential of the Adelaide Hills so, when approached in 2005 to take on Alta, I jumped at the chance."

Since then, Sarah has produced a consistently award winning Sauvignon Blanc, in addition to releasing two new varietals; Pinot Grigio and Pinot Noir Rosé.
